    "I would have held your shaking hands,

    My Heart Was Ripped Away From Me

    I wrote this when I was 17. I wasn't in the best of states. I had been cutting a week. But soon after I wrote this I got over my life and pulled my-self back together. The wind combs my hair, the silk of the breeze so smooth. The sparkles in the night sky, they shine so bright...

    Hard One One man walks out,

    about his realm. He surveys what he knows is there. His orchards stretched in soldier lines. Fat with apple, quince, and pear. His barns stand straight, new-painted red. The silo bulge'n - life within. Hay rows tedder'd,set for bale'n. Bessie clangs her bell of tin. Gold...

    Lovely lines of blurry blood.

    Clean and clear cuts slathered with the liquid thick and messy, and oh how it reminded her of mud. Dirty heart and damned soul, only seemingly fit her veins would weep wet soil. Simply said and stated, her mentality was out dated. Death and dying were topics of days past, but...

    LIPS Words would hang like leaves from trees.

    You're toxic. I'm so used.

    So used to your poison. And now I'm poisoned. By you and everything about you. I've been poisoned (for so long) and I think - I'm addicted to it. To your poison.

    The sun scolds my eyes

    Online we link. Our passions synch.

    Chatting about dirty things, My skin flushes and hormones sing. What I miss Though is a kiss. My heart would flutter as I feel My distant lover become real. And the rest... Are they the best? Or is it happily enough To once again feel loved?
